INDIANA'S $5 MILLION CLUB
Fremont man has sixth sense worth five million dollars
Tim Lawton of Fremont, Ind. man has joined an exclusive club. Lawton won $5 million on Indiana’s $5 Million Club Scratch-off. He is the first lucky player to win a top prize on the game. The Ohio-native-turned-Hoosier attributes his win to a sixth sense. He says he almost didn’t buy the $5 million winning ticket. He initially intended to purchase different tickets and was in the process of saying to the clerk “give me two Wheel of Fortune tickets” but stopped midsentence and changed his purchase – and fortune. “It was a fluke that I picked that one,” said Lawton. “It was like a light went on and something just told me to buy it.” Read more of Tim's story here.
